"Punjabi" (Eastern Punjabi) as language spoken by India and various other countries, with writing system Gurmukhi

Arguments[edit]

  • In India, Punjabi is one of the 22 languages with official status in India. It is the first official language of Punjab (India) and Union Territory State Chandigarh and the 2nd official language of Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi. Even in UK it has gained the status of the second most spoken language after English. Punjabi inherits vocabulary from Indus Valley Civilisation as it is spoken in the main heartland of that Civilisation. Punjabi needs to be added to wikiquote so that Punjabi users can also use wiki.
  • Most Hindi films have dialogues in Punjabi. Punjabi Wikiquote should be created. Vibhijain 10:31, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Support Punjabi Wikiquote will be helpful for many punjabi speakers, I think. --Sotiale (talk) 08:20, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
